Description

Purple Pitaya (Dragon Fruit) Nice Cream

Ingredients

2  
red-fleshed pitayas (flesh only, or sub two 3.5oz smoothie packs)
3  
Frozen Bananas (peeled)
1⁄2 cup
milk of choice (or half and half*)
   
juice from 1 small lime

Notes

*half and half offers a creamier consistency

**OPTIONAL: top with Fancy Sprinkles!

Instructions

  1. In a high-powered blender (Blendtec or Vitamix), add all of your ingredients. Pulse or blend until smooth and creamy. If you need to thicken things up a bit, you can add more frozen banana.
  2. Transfer mixture to an ice-cream maker and churn according to the manufactures instructions. *If you do not have an ice-cream maker: simply transfer mixture from your blender to a freezer-safe container and freeze. Every hour check on your mixture and mix with a fork or spoon. 
  3. Freeze 6 hours or until completely firm. Then, when ready to eat, remove from freezer and let container sit out for approximately 5 minutes to soften. Then, scoop and serve.
  4. Store any leftover nice cream in freezer, covered. Yummmm.
